  • Low prices and high supply growth in Q4 2012, but a clear improvement in market balance towards year-end and continuing into 2013.

    NOK -48.9m in Q4 2012, against NOK -38.2m in Q4 2011.
  • Improved results in Norway, but extraordinarily weaker results in UK and Canada.
  • Write-downs related to outbreak of furunculosis in the smolt facility in BC as well as increased mortality in Shetland from the treatment of salmon lice and AGD (amoebic gill disease) reduced the performance by a total of NOK 92m in Q4.
